WASHINGTON — President Bush charged Thursday that Iran continues to arm and train insurgents who are killing U.S. soldiers in Iraq, and he threatened action if that continues.
Cheney, who's long been skeptical of diplomacy with Iran, argued for military action if hard new evidence emerges of Iran's complicity in supporting anti-American forces in Iraq; for example, catching a truckload of fighters or weapons crossing into Iraq from Iran, one official said.
The Bush administration has launched what appears to be a coordinated campaign to pin more of Iraq's security troubles on Iran.
U.S. Military Captures Video of Iraqi Insurgents Prepping Iranian Rockets for Battle
In this image released by the U.S. military, insurgents are seen in a videotape setting up 49 rockets aimed at Forward Operating Base Hammer, about 20 miles east of Baghdad; the rockets were launched Sunday, Aug. 5, 2007. The video also shows the set-up of an attack on the base July 11, 2007, which killed one soldier and wounded 15. The video was captured in a raid Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2007.
Reliable sources have told "The Hal Turner Show" that at 0300 yesterday morning, crews of B-2 "Stealth" bombers at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri were ordered deployed immediately to Guam.
Crews barely had time to phone relatives to tell them they were being forward-deployed. Crews could not say where they were going or how long they would be deployed, but "The Hal Turner Show" can confirm the long range nuclear bombers have been sent to Guam. Additional details as they become available. . . . . check back.
Just in time for the economy if you ask me.

Oh come on, Iran is basically BEGGING to be bombed right now. I mean they parade their terrorist relationships and ideology daily in their streets and media.

Iran is developing nuclear technology to use in a plan against the U.S., better to avoid it now then deal with it later.

Valiant Shield 07 kicked off August 6th, and runs through August 13th. It involves the USAF, USN, USCG, USMC, etc. 280 aircraft, and several hundred ships are all involved in it. This is the second year that Valiant Shield has been held.
6/20/2006 - ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam (AFPN) -- The 393rd Expeditionary Bomb Squadron has spent the past three weeks refining the skills necessary to maintain the B-2 Spirit, one of the world’s most advanced weapon systems.
During exercises Valiant Shield, continuing through June 23, and Northern Edge, which ran from June 5 to 16, B-2 aircrew members executed long-duration missions and integrated with aircraft they don’t typically see on the range.
Valiant Shield, conducted on and around Guam, is a U.S. Pacific Command exercise which focuses on integrated joint training and interoperability among U.S. military forces while responding to a range of mission scenarios.

What really worries me is that those bombers have nuclear capabilities and if you believe the source article on that story, those planes do not get deployed unless they are going to strike.

How long does it take the bombers to reach their targets? Scary stuff with so many nations at the brink of war.

The source said the Pilots didn't know where they were going.
If they are merely participating in Valiant shield, they would of known about it ages ago.
